I have guests who want to book a 2 day private on 26th and 27th March for their family - 5yr, 8yr, Mum and Dad. You always get rave reviews on this forum and I was hoping you'd be free but ski school told me you're already held off for the 27th. Can you please recommend an instructor who you think would work well and have fun with a family of 4 novice skiers (think Dad is better than the other 3 but wants the experience with his family and a few pointers himself too).
Many thanks for your help Laura,

Hi there from here! I am starting to think about January again. We'll be there Jan. 14-24 if all goes as planned. Not at that huge house this time. The house was great but the whole MM operation overpromised and in the end we felt it was too much $$$ for just a nice house and a few meals. We'll probably be back at the base but haven't nailed down specifics. I have to book you soon to get the big kahuna discount. We made Gold! Yay! We spent so much it hurt! Yay! I'm just yanking your chain, girlfriend. You are worth every dime.
I'll let you know. See you on facebook. Maybe you should change your profile pic here, too. Ha. Ha.
We are signed up to have teach private lessons to a group of five year olds on Spring Break week, March 18th and 19th. You were referred to us by Tros who we loved having for our older kids and are excited about the private lessons for our little ones.
We have two five year old girls who have ski in group lessons for the past two/three years, one six year old boy who has skied in group lessons and one five year old girl that this will be her first time to ski. All of these kids will be taking two days of group lessons before they come and see you. All of these kids are very active in various sports and are 2nd/3rd children, so they are ready to ski down the big mountain!!! Here are my questions.
1) Any suggestions on getting the most out of our first two days of group lessons. I know last year that we were frustrated with the small slope and limited amount of skiing the kids were able to do. I think they are physically capable of more now but do not want them hanging out on the bottum of the hill getting bored.
2) Do you see any issues with the 5 year old girl being ready for private lessons with you being that this is her first year to ski? My thought is that she will catch up quickly with the others.
I realize alot of this depends on alot of factors but just trying to get your thoughts. Thanks for the time. My email is email@example.com
Great Stuff. Many thanks!. One of the dad's we are travelling with is planning a special- adult only- birthday dinner for his wife. We are all first timers out in SB - so I can't thank you enough for this valuable info!
Just gpes tp show how slow I am on the uptake. When Trudy introduced you as "Laura" on Friday afternoon, it didn't dawn on me until after you had left that you were THAT Laura, on whom she has heaped so much praise over the years.
Enjoyed meeting you and remeeting the others; I will be back on the 31st for my week; do you know of any others on the forum who will be there in that time frame, so we can arrange another forum meet?
Hey, Laura. Getting ready to go. On Friday can you stay a little while for apres ski at Slopeside? Boo and other forum regulars are meeting at 4:30. They would love to meet you in person too. I am going to send Andrew & Matthew back to the house so I can hang out a little while. Arthur is having a massage. Maybe we'll even make it to The Ptarmigan this trip we can send the kids home via the Moving Moutains car at the T-head lift then just ski down to have a relaxed afternoon.
